Spoonman by Soundgarden MP3 Info

"Spoonman" is a song by the American alternative rock band Soundgarden. Written by frontman Chris Cornell, "Spoonman" was released on February 15, 1994 as the first single from the band's fourth studio album, Superunknown (1994). "Spoonman" is often credited as one of the songs that launched Soundgarden's career into the mainstream. The song peaked at number three on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. A remixed version of the song by Steve Fisk appears on the "Black Hole Sun" and "My Wave" singles. The song was included on Soundgarden's 1997 greatest hits album, A-Sides. "Spoonman" was originally written for the soundtrack to the 1992 film, Singles. At this time, Soundgarden, along with fellow grunge band Pearl Jam, was working on the soundtrack for the film. Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament had been put in charge of creating the name for a fictional band that would appear in the film. Before finally choosing Citizen Dick for its name, Ament had compiled a list of potential names which included the name "Spoonman". The name was inspired by Artis the Spoonman, a street performer from Santa Cruz, California and later Seattle, Washington, who plays music with a set of spoons. Soundgarden vocalist and songwriter Chris Cornell eventually used the names on the list to create songs for the film. "Spoonman" was among these, and an acoustic version was created from it. This early version of the song can be heard in the background during a scene of the film. Rather than just leave the song on the film's soundtrack, Soundgarden began working on an electric version of "Spoonman". The song's inspiration, Artis the Spoonman, played a prominent role in the song itself. The final version of the song featured Artis the Spoonman playing his spoons as part of the song's instrumental. Drummer Matt Cameron also plays pots and pans on the song. Bassist Ben Shepherd performs backing vocals on the song. "Spoonman" was performed in drop D tuning. The main riff used in the verse has 14 beats, which is unusual because most songs are written in 4/4 or 3/4 time. Guitarist Kim Thayil has said that Soundgarden usually did not consider the time signature of a song until after the band had written it, and said that the use of odd meters was "a total accident." Cornell on "Spoonman": It's more about the paradox of who is and what people perceive him as. He's a street musician, but when he's playing on the street, he is given a value and judged completely wrong by someone else. They think he's a street person, or he's doing this because he can't hold down a regular job. They put him a few pegs down on the social ladder because of how they perceive someone who dresses differently. The lyrics express the sentiment that I much more easily identify with someone like Artis than I would watch him play. The band would play "Spoonman" while on its 1993 tour with Neil Young. With hype building around the band's upcoming album Superunknown, Soundgarden released the single a month before the album's release. The song was released as a single in 1994 with a previously unreleased B-side titled "Exit Stonehenge". On the choice of "Spoonman" as the album's first single, Shepherd called it a "great first choice," adding that "it just jumps out at you instantly." Shepherd said, "You know how you listen to a record and there is one song that literally seems to leap out of the speakers—well, "Spoonman" did that to me." Shortly after the single's release, the song became widely popular, reaching high positions on rock charts. The song peaked at number three on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and number nine on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. At the 1995 Grammy Awards, "Spoonman" received the award for Best Metal Performance. Outside the United States, the single was released commercially in Australia, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. In Canada, the song reached number 12 on the Canadian Singles Chart. "Spoonman" reached the UK Top 20 and would peak at number 23 on the Australian Singles Chart. "Spoonman" reached the top 30 in Australia and Ireland and was a top ten success in New Zealand. "Spoonman" appears in the 2001 video game, ATV Offroad Fury, for the PlayStation 2. The song is also featured in the 2008 video games, Battle of the Bands,Rock Band 2, and Rock Revolution. The music video for "Spoonman" was directed by Jeffrey Plansker (under the alias John Smithey). The video also features Artis prominently, making him the focus of the video instead of the band. The band members are shown only in black-and-white still photographs. The video was released in February 1994. Cornell on the music video: I think we were fairly smart with "Spoonman" in that you really don't see us that much in the video. You see various pictures of us, but it's not quite the same as having us in your living room all the time. We're trying to maintain some degree of mystique about Soundgarden, I guess. I remember back when I was a kid, long before MTV, and the only way to see my favorite bands was to go to their concerts. It was an incredible experience. MTV has helped a lot of bands, but they've also helped rob a lot of groups of that special mystique. It's tough when you can see a great rock band on TV one second, then hit the clicker and be watching a soap opera or a sit com the next. That's what rock and roll has become for some people.

MrDixieD - Wonderful album

Incredible artistry, passion introspection. Intense. This is an amazing body of work.

TedwardTAR - Voice of a Generation

A true showcase for Chris’ talent as a vocalist and songwriter. Amazingly diverse. My only quibble with this collection? If you’re going to have 50+ songs, how about offering something his loyal fans have wanted on a release, such as Heart of Honey or Gold from Audioslave. Seems like a missed opportunity.

rerespfan - AWESOME

Incredible voice gone too soon. Love this collection. Thank you for this.

oOToddOo - Amazing Tribute

His music stirs my soul. Finally, the perfect compilation of his life’s work. Rest easy, Chris and thank you...

Billy7915 - Loved it!

It could’ve been better, if they removed all the background noise for the live songs.

OneHappyChick - W.o.w.

This album is amazing. Every song has 5 stars in my library. Some are heartwrenching to listen to, given his story's ending- but so beautiful with or without the sad irony. To his wife- well done, sweetie. It'll do.

TheRealSemaj - To the above review

This is not “the blood sucking industry making money off of the dead” this compilation was organized and thought of by his wife as a way to remember him. Try not to be so cynical.

Ajp2gggog - Such an amazing collection

One of the greatest rock voices ever. A great tribute!

givitachance - The Definitive Chris Cornell Collection

I just want to thank Chris’s wife, family, and friends for putting this amazing collection together! I also want to thank iTunes for putting it out so we can hear it, listen to it wherever we go, reminisce, and soak in the greatness of Chris Cornell. There is not one throwaway track in this entire collection! There are not enough words to describe how amazingly talented Chris Cornell was and how as a fan of his music ( both solo and collaborations ) he is sorely missed!

TexFlood - Someone blocked the songs created by Chris for Soundgarden

Was there an issue with the record company or surviving members?

rah711 - Johnny Come Lately

I freely admit I was a bit late to the party (74 years old) but I did recognize early on with Soungarden that this man vocally was truly blessed with a gift. He not only had that uniquely haunting voice but was also a supreme lyricist. Homicide detectives will tell you murder is bad, but suicide is tragic. This man had the looks, musical gifts, adulation of adoring fans, and unimaginable wealth and in the end it just wasn’t enough. It is a very heartbreaking story. R.I.P.

keith7711 - Keith7711

A true musician sorely missed

maggot36 - Sad

Love Chris Cornell. With that said it’s sad that I can’t buy wild world I need to buy the album ! I own most of everything on here . What a joke I’ll have to get it somewhere else I guess

Tim "MeLTeDButta" - Fkn Legend

Greatest voice of Rock in our generation. So unique. Also do not let his Armenian wife use his legacy to bash Turkish people. He was such a beautiful person.

bluberyballdipn - Long Live Seattle Sound

Gone to soon but the music lives on

Uuugh i dont need a name - Awesome but

I wish we could get Ave Maria without the cheezy backtrack. It really wrecks how beautiful the vocals are.

Casteinman - The best

When at home I watch his videos but this album lets me have it wherever I am. Was my favorite vocalist. His voice is unmatched. He is missed.

truecritic72 - The Voice of my Generation

I loved everything he done, Soundgarden was my favorite grunge band, I couldn't believe the news of his death in 2017, this is a great compilation of music by one of the greatest vocalists of a generation.

Ah . . . yeah - What a body of work this man had

God rest your soul, Chris.

Sandstorm #7 - Rip Great God Cornell

Chris would be proud his wife is keeping his memory alive. Everyone, buy his music and help spread his love. He is smiling down. Amen

Brneydlass - Love it

Chris Cornell was an incredible soul. This collection was my Christmas gift to myself.

Destroyer 21👾 - Soundgarden x Audioslave

R.I.P. Chris

jct71 - Wonderful collection. Rest peacefully Chris.

Wonderful collection of songs. As I get older, I find myself wrestling with why so many good and / or talented people get taken too soon and so much crap seems to last forever. I've always loved Chris's voice and the texture and depth in it. To Chris's family, so very sorry for your loss and may peace be ever-present in your lives.

Al212 - Range

Chris Cornell was a guy who was able to stretch across a genre of music using his insane ability to hit every note on the spectrum. I think this is the collection of all of it. Rip

Charmed1069 - Forever a Fan

His voice is unmistakable and what I mean by this is no matter if I was watching TV or a movie and one of his songs came on I knew it was him!!! Simply Amazing Voice!! And I will forever Be a Fan! RIP❤️❤️❤️

SHilgoe - New Song is Soooo Good!

The previously unreleased "When Bad Does Good" is soooooo good!!! #stillhurts #keepthepromise

Alex h matter - About time

Amazing. Best artist over the lst 15 yrs maybe longer. My only issue is this compilation is missing two drink minimum and when im down. Those two tracks are amazing and sad to not see it on the list

🅱️eston😂🔫 - You will be missed

I found out about the absolute legend that is Chris Cornell only a few months after he died. I know that wasn’t long ago, but in that two and a half year span his music changed my life. It is ultimately what got me into music at all (along side other legends like foo fighters, ratm, Pearl Jam, etc. etc. etc.) but what Chris did between Soundgarden, Audioslave, and his own solo stuff, is absolutely fkn incredible. I was devastated to find out what happened to him, and so sad I would never see him live. I know not a lot of people will read this, but I hope one day I will get a band together and start making my own music. And if you ever hear it, you will be able to see his influence on that music. I pay my respects to you Chris. Rest In Peace and rock on 🤟 (Also I heard there is an entire records worth of unreleased audioslave material, including rare songs like gold and slight of hand, and I would love to hear some more Chris, so get on it, Tom Morello!)

LdyRidr - Best of the Best

How can there only be 80 stars and 34 reviews... I just don't get it. The crap out there today blows my mind and then there is Chris Cornell. Heads above the rest by a landslide. I'll never get over his passing. This album is a fantastic representation of the huge collections of songs Chris Cornell wrote and shared with us. I truly hope that there is more to come out of the vaults! Do yourself a favor and check out his bad@ss music! Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and his solo music. Rest in Peace!

chriskamykowski - The Last Rock God

No one sings like Chris anymore. The body of work here shows the man’s genius. I hope there is a stash of unreleased material somewhere. Until then, this will keep me busy. Well done.

Myselfandmeandyou - Rest in Peace

Chris Cornell had such an impact on my life. His music brought me through some of the darkest times in my life. He will be missed dearly. This album has some of his greatest songs, a few important ones are missing, in my opinion but it’s worth every penny. He was a legend, and there isn’t enough words to describe how much I love his music. I hope he is in a happier place, and free from pain. ❤️ Rest in peace.

David DiVona - What’s voice.

The new song is amazing. So glad they released it. Can’t wait for the rest of it to come out!

Losingsanity402 - RIP Chris

Sun shower and season I’ve been waiting 10 years to buy these singles!!!

doublehatx - A Rock GOD

No one sings like you anymore

JohnnyB1964 - Great selection of Chris

I have enjoyed every track so far on this download. May Chris In Peace.

Insanityrone45 - A gift

You can tell this is made for his fans out of remembrance for an amazing talent and pioneer of the grunge scene therefore inspiration to 40 million plus gen xrs, millenials, y’s, z’s, doom ... Excellent showcase. Price is a bit high for a digital copy. Sound quality is excellent.

Trust and Us - ❤️
